We're in Arkhangel'sk!

We're almost there. The 11 hour flight was great - we slept for about 5 hours (thanks to Tylenol PM!) -that really made the time fly.
We got to Moscow around 8:00 pm and at our hotel and in to bed around midnight. We flew on Aeroflot to Ark this morning and are now waiting for our flight to Kotlas. I've heard horror stories about Aeroflot but can honestly say, it was a very nice flight. (Jim is in love with the women over here - they're BEAUTIFUL!!). Don't worry, I'm keeping him on a short leash!

Tomorrow we will meet the children!! We're so excited! Our rep in Russia, Dimitry, showed us more pics of the kids and they really are truly beautiful.

Hopefully we'll get to post again before the end of the trip but we're going to such a remote area, we don't know if they will have accomodations.

Will write again when we can -
Jane & Jim

So glad you are there safe! We loved Aerflot as we flew it on trip one. Great flight! Can't wait to hear about you meeting those kiddos!

It sounds like everything is going well. I bet the flight will not be that bad. Enjoy meeting your little ones.

Just doing my daily check in to make sure all is well. I can't believe how much traveling y'all are doing.

Jim's right, the women are gorgeous but have you noticed there is a severe shortage of male eye candy to look at?

Enjoy the rest of your week!

Good luck to you both and have fun with your little ones.

Oh my goodness. I just clicked on your blog and forgot you are in Russia as I type. I am so excited and so jealous. So glad to be reading a blog from people using the same agency as us. I just yelled out to my husband who thinks this adoption will never happen, "Guess what,Jane and Jim are in Russia". I have a feeling tomorrow will be love at first sight. Enjoy every minute of it.
